MAISON SAADAH X LIVE LOUD GIRL BENI OURAIN RUGS

Beni ourain rugA few months ago we gave you a little sneek peak into our collaboration with Maison Saadah, developing a collection of ‘Live Loud Girl’ rugs. A dream come true for us as we have been huge fans of these Moroccan Beni Ourain hand made rugs.
Maison Saadah is an online store that came to life in 2015 when they started bringing the   famous Beni Ourain Rugs to the UAE. These wool rugs are hand made in the
mountains of Morocco and traditionally feature a black pattern woven into a cream foreground.
Classic Beni Ourain rugs are well known and appreciated for their specific
patterns, dense weave and immense softness due to the use of  high quality un-dyed wool.
The collaboration between Maison Saadah and Live Loud Girl is all about bringing a breath of fresh air to the home decor scene with its more modern design and use of bold colours while preserving the traditional weaving techniques and the unique look and feel of these iconic rugs.
The process started with discussions accompanied by cups of coffee. We had all the freedom we wanted in terms of color, weave and patterns yet wanted to stay true to the core values rugs and Live Loud Girl signature. Slowly but surely we had three designs on the table. We found inspiration in palm trees, waves, wind and not to forget that touch of pink and our loved grid. Seeing the final drawings of the 3 rugs and then having the actual rugs here under our feet is surreal.
For the shoot we wanted to really let the rugs do all the talking. The bold colors compliment the composed and layed-back vibe that these three rugs give a room.
We can honestly say that we are honored and proud. Honored to have been asked by Maison Saadah to go on this adventure together. Proud to have done our first product development.
These babies are available online so you can have a real Maison Saadah  ♥ Live Loud Girl Beni Ourain Rug in your home too!

ROOMSTYLING: PARTY HEARTY GIRLS ROOM – BOYS ROOM

We always get excited about installations. That is the most rewarding part of our jobs. To see happy dwellers enter their new room for the first time is quite a bit thing for us . Especially when they are old enough to have an opinion…

In our latest installation we were asked to take care of the styling of a girls and a boys room. Two different genders, ages and styles yet all under one roof. A fun adventure in working with some amazing new products and a few golden oldies.

We started with a color scheme for the boys room. For a 7  year old we definitely wanted it to be a space where he can grow into so we went for some bold complimentary colors.
On his wish list was a bunk bed and we were able to grant him that one with a beautiful and timeless Flexa bed.  And he happened to be a grid fan… High five to that as we have no problems with grid bedding from Cats and Boys and some dito wall paper from Ferm Living.
The Jotun foresty green gives the room a more mature feel yet the unfinished tough of the top keeps it playful and fun.
Time now for some ‘Loud’ elements. The yellow Flexa shelving really freshens up that mature green, just like the Banana poster from The Poster Club. And how about the orange stool from Ikea? Such funky elements for a boy this age.

For the girls room we had no choice then to use pink. We did however choose a warm blood orangy color by Jotun which is girly yet also a little more adaptable to use with other colors. And to separate the sleeping and chilling corners of the room, we decided to color one wall only half way. In this corner of the room we chose to hang a Byron Bay hanging chair from Tribe. We know you have seen it before, remember our Dip Dye teen room? It is such an iconic piece that will be used for years and years!
We never shy away from a good book shelfie as you might know and this time we used some gorgeous styling elements like the Pink Giraffe & Unicorn Finger Puppets by Party Camel Velveteen Babies Garland, the set of Mikanu pears and the Fiona Walker animal heads via Tribe.
On the opposite wall we went for some good old wall dots from Urban Walls and a Pax and Hart poster via Bysomethingels complimented by the rainbow pillow on the bed

 

GOOD TO BE HOME AGAIN

We are back home! Back to normal life, routine, school lunches and sport bags. Yet to be honest, after 12 weeks of holiday, it’s kinda nice to be behind our computers  again with our trusted home brewed coffee.

As we mentioned to you earlier, we weren’t bored over the last few weeks. Because next to having quality time with family and friends, we paid our favorite shops back home a visit, for inspiration and sourcing as we are in de midst of a few exciting projects.
